The AGL Peak Energy Rewards Managed for You program is a pilot program which is testing new ways to reduce demand on the electricity grid to help ensure there’s enough energy for everyone, when it’s needed.
Between April 2018 and 31 March 2019, when the electricity grid is experiencing high demand, we’ll notify pilot participants that a “peak event” will occur.
After we install a new Schneider EVLink Smart Wallbox we’ll remotely pause it charging your electric vehicle during a peak event. Each peak event will run for up to two hours. You can opt out of each peak event:
before or during the event if you choose via the ChargeFox electric vehicle management app, which you can download to your smartphone. All the details of how to configure your ChargeFox electric vehicle management platform will be sent in your welcome pack, including how to opt out of peak events;
you can also opt out up to four hours prior to the event by contacting the Electric Vehicles team from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday on 1300 001 515.
After each peak event, the Schneider EVLink Smart Wallbox will automatically be returned to its previous power use.
In return for your participation in the entire two-hours of each peak event you’ll receive financial rewards. Combined financial rewards for your participation will be sent in November 2018 and April 2019.
